  1. Thanks Jim for your response. My husband has been over that table with a fine tooth comb. The only thing that changes when going from Lenni to Lucey are the side arms on the frame to move the front rollers for the top and the backing out to provide for the longer throat space on the Lucey. The table is the same. The carriage is the same. The deluxe frame is a bit more beefy, which I think would add to the stability for the heavier machine and the longer reach.
  2. I went from a Lenni to a Lucey about a year and a half ago. I only had to change out the end arms on the table to accommodate the larger throat of the Lucey for my table that I already had. Since getting the Lucey, I have had a vibration issue that we cannot solve and it drives me crazy. I feel like I will never get any consistency in the quality of my quilting because I’m always dealing with the vibration. I think we’ve tried just about everything and I was wondering if it would make a difference to upgrade to a deluxe table. I have a 12 ft standard frame with Bliss now. So two questions....1. Do you think upgrading the table would help this issue? And 2. Is there a market for a used standard table with bliss? The vibration is all over the map as to where the machine is at the time on the frame. It makes it really hard to control the movements of the machine. My husband has reinforced our floor joists under the table, checked the table for level many times, I’ve put pucks under the legs, rubber belting under the legs, nothing under the legs, nothing seems to help. The flooring is vinyl plank over the subfloor, on the main floor. The closer I am to the front of the frame (That sweet spot for quilting distance) the worse the vibration is. Ugh. TIA for any insights... Kathy
  3. Nice quilt! I’d probably ditch the links, and put something inside the big cream areas dense enough to have the pieced links pop. I’ll look forward to the finished piece and see what you end up doing. Love the quilt so far :-).
  4. That’s a beauty! Great job on the quilting!
  5. I did a king sized double batting, wool & 80/20, with Lenni on a 12 foot table.
  6. Well, I have worked through all the suggestions, from APQS tech support on this issue that I am having with my Lucey, that I never had with my Lenni and it still is not resolved. In fact I am so frustrated with skipping stitches and random nests and thread getting shredded and not being able to stitch 4 inches from right to left without an issue I'm ready to throw in the towel. I watched the timing video today and my husband and I went through checking all of that. The only thing that looked out of whack was the stop finger being a bit too close to the basket, so adjusted that. Seemed to be better, but now we are back to square one. I believe I have a lemon. I should have kept my Lenni. I have had Lucey less than a year and had more trouble than it's worth. Kinda sucks the joy out of quilting. Guess I'll call tech support again tomorrow.
  7. I see it now Terry! It’s gorgeous! Love the colours. I bet that was fun to make!
  8. Looks amazing Terry. I think the pic of the front is missing?
  9. Thank you! My ruler base is on pretty much 100% of the time as I have yet to do a quilt that I do not use rulers on. I always work from the front of the machine and always freehand. I could see removing the ruler base if you were working from the back doing a panto perhaps. I don’t know why someone would suggest removing it otherwise. Perhaps someone with more experience could enlighten us in that as I really don’t get it being a problem leaving it on. Did “they” say why? Kathy
  10. Thank you! Yes, it’s freehand with the aid of a straight edge ruler and also a curved ruler to make the spines.
  11. Thanks everyone for taking the time and for the feedback! Much appreciated!
  12. I finished two quilts at the end of May so I could take them to 2 of my sisters in central Canada while visiting this summer on our cross country trip to visit Newfoundland for the first time. What a great trip we had! The pattern is Angela Walter’s “Coral”, available free on her website. Both quilts are the same, except the first one I used a slightly contrasting thread (to the background) because I thought it blended a bit better with the print segments and the second quilt I used a matching thread. In the end, I thought the second one came out better as I had figured out the quilting execution by the time I got there! I’ve only attached the front and back pictures of one quilt here.
